I’m not sure the pigment would be soluble in water and you would have to find hundreds of specimens because they’re so small, the specimens here have a pileus diameter of 7-8mm and a stipe length of 25mm, it would be virtually impossible to find enough to be useful for dying!

Colour so rich!

I’ve yet to find any mushrooms with such saturation of colour, would those have similar characteristics to dermocybe as far as dying fabrics?
